Info Edit

    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is defined as a permanent loss of renal function as indicated by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The GBD study considers five stages of CKD as defined by degree of loss of renal function or receipt of renal replacement therapy: CKD Stage III (eGFR 30-60ml/min/1.73m^2 ), CKD Stage IV (eGFR 15-30ml/min/1.73m^2 ), CKD Stage V (eGFR <15ml/min/1.73m^2, not on renal replacement therapy), maintenance dialysis, and renal transplantation.
